Luxury holiday cottages in the UK & Ireland

The Rural Retreats portfolio represents the cream of self-catering luxury holiday cottages throughout the UK and Ireland. With over 375 stylishly presented country houses and cottages to choose from, each carefully selected to meet our high standards of comfort, Rural Retreats makes it easy to find just the holiday home you are looking for.

Many are buildings of historical importance, beautifully and imaginatively restored and refurbished to meet modern standards. The vast majority of which are close to the coast or nestle deep within some of this country's most beautiful countryside. They include 26 former lighthouse keeper's cottages in spectacular coastal locations.

Our guiding philosophy is that your holiday is all about you. You deserve a relaxing break and a quality experience. We strive to make it that way by helping you to choose the right property and giving you the very best of service before and during your self-catering holiday.
